Your big day.
Drive down a charming treelined road, and you’ll arrive at Pennyhill Park, a traditional country house set amongst 120 acres of Surrey parkland. With a Michelin-starred restaurant and an award-winning spa, our team are on hand to create the wedding of your dreams.
WHERE TO SAY “I DO”
Perfect for summer weddings, our Pavilion creates the most impressive of wedding backdrops. The sloping roof and stone steps of the ornate structure are set down from the Lily Pond Terrace and surrounded by 120 acres of leafy grounds. Your guests will take their seats on a tiered grass terrace, where they’ll have the best view as you exchange vows.
Not only is it beautiful, but it’s wired for sound too so that your guests can hear everything clearly. Decorate the space as you want, with pretty floral archways, lanterns, or your favourite bouquets –whatever makes it unique to you. And don’t worry if it’s raining, because we’ll always keep an indoor option on standby for you.
Space for all your guests
Available April to September
Charming outdoor setting
This classically elegant room can be decorated to perfectly suit your style. Perhaps have your florist go all out, or have a simple petal-strewn aisle, both make for a lovely addition. As the backdrop to your vows, the impressive wooden bookcase can be dressed up with fairy-lights, while the chandelier at the centre of the room adds some extra sparkle. It’s a wonderful setting for a day you’ll remember forever.
Located in the main house, The Library is our main indoor space for wedding ceremonies. The original features add plenty of character – there’s a large wooden archway on one side of the room that reveals the feature fireplace and grand stained-glass windows provide plenty of natural light. Peek outside and you’ll get a stunning view of our scenic grounds.

Access to terrace and gardens
Secret stone balcony
Your own private bar
The Parkview Suite has just been refurbished and renovated to offer you an exclusive setting for your speeches, cake cutting and, most importantly, the wedding breakfast. Located in the terrace wing, it has windows on two sides that fill it with natural light and a private stone balcony. Chandeliers at the centre of the room add a touch of glamour, as well as the ornate architectural details and plush interior design.
After the ceremony your guests can enjoy drinks and canapés on the Lily Pond Terrace before moving into Parkview for your celebrations to continue. If it rains on your big day, no need to worry, the Water Lily Suite, which has been artfully refurbished with hand painted panelling and floral sculptural lights, is the perfect indoor setting for your drinks reception. Plus they say it’s a sign of good luck, as a wet knot can’t be untied! And for the rest of the night? Your guests can order drinks from the Parkview private bar and enjoy dancing the night away.
Our grounds are made for magical moments. The original mansion house makes for a stunning setting all year round, dramatically covered with vibrant green leaves in the summer, turning a stunning crimson a few months later. It couldn’t be more romantic.

SARAH & GIORGIO THEIR STORY
Sarah and Giorgio met at school and started dating when they were just 15. On the weekend of Sarah’s 26th birthday Giorgio had booked a surprise spa break at Pennyhill Park. What she didn’t realise until later that evening was that he’d arranged a private dinner. After enjoying drinks on a cosy sofa in front of the fire, they went into their own private room for the meal, which is where Giorgio proposed! Nearly three years later, they came back to tie the knot. Here’s how it went…
The happy couple: Sarah and Giorgio Coppola
The special date: 19th August 2021
The photographer: Yulia Tsezar
The florist: Longacres Garden Centre
The cake: Odiham Cake Company
The outfit: Sass & Grace and Moss Bros
What did you love most about Pennyhill Park?
“When we were unable to go ahead with our original plan of getting married abroad, we knew straight away that we wanted to get married at Pennyhill Park. It’s where our engagement took place, so it was already so special to us.
“The whole process with Pennyhill Park was smooth and professional. The planning and organisation ahead of the wedding day meant
What do you remember most about the day itself?
that, when the day came, I was able to relax because I knew everything was in hand. The day itself ran so smoothly and the team were fantastic.
Along with our guests we thoroughly enjoyed the food and glad we opted for a couple of upgrades for the wedding breakfast, as it made it feel extra special.”
“As cliché as it sounds, walking down the aisle to the pavilion where Giorgio was stood waiting. As soon as the music started playing and I started walking down the steps with my Dad, I remember seeing our guests looking at us with huge smiles on their faces. I suddenly felt really emotional, as the day was finally here. Our photographer also captured this moment perfectly!“
Were there any special moments or surprises?
“Menu tasting! We were pleasantly surprised by what Pennyhill Park had arranged and it was a lovely afternoon in preparation for the big day. It was also one of those moments when you realise it’s not long until the big day and it helps build the excitement.
Another moment was when we did our couple’s photoshoot. We went to a few spots in the grounds of Pennyhill Park while our guests were enjoying the Pimms and nibbles. I loved these little moments because, even though our photographer was there, it felt like it was time for just us two to really take in the day.”
The team were supportive and helpful throughout.
Did you have a theme to bring your day to life?
“We didn’t have a wedding theme as such, partly due to it being an intimate wedding. In terms of colours, for me, this came from choosing the flowers for my bouquet and the flowers that were on the table. I had chosen these early on with the wedding team at Longacres Garden Centre and that helped form the colours and styles we selected for the stationery, favours and table decorations.”
Tell us about the dress...
“I think I visited around eight bridal shops until I finally found ‘the dress’. It was from this gorgeous boutique on the outskirts of Winchester, called Sass & Grace. Sam who owns the boutique is so lovely and has a fantastic range of dresses. Once I had picked my dress, I tried on a few veils and hair clips that Sam had in the shop and ended up ordering two of them for the day.”
What tips or advice would you give to future couples?
“Everybody says it, but it really is your wedding day so do exactly what you want to do. Our wedding wasn’t exactly traditional, but it was perfect for us and we’re so glad we didn’t change anything. Follow your heart and keep a spreadsheet on what you’re spending, especially for the little costs as they add up!”
